Our Philosophy

Philosophy of 200hrs Parimukti Basic Teacher Training (YA 200)

This training is based on the Ashtanga Yoga path of the Patanjali Yoga Sutras and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. This foundation will give you experience and understanding of the yogic path. We follow the tradition of Krishnamacharya, which is reflected in the fact that the asana practice is mostly in the Hatha Yoga tradition. Practices like asana, breath awareness, basic pranayamas, kriyas (cleansing techniques), visualization,

mantras

and meditation, will be presented and practiced within the course from the very beginning.

Also

we acknowledge the different bodily and mental constitutions, by giving a brief introduction to Ayurveda.

In this phase you will undergo a profound realignment and purification of the physical body, experiencing the results in your own energy and mental/emotional body. Starting from the most tangible in this basic training we will proceed to the most subtle in the advanced training: from the physical body to the energy body, to the mind.

When you have accomplished this training with commitment and dedication, you will feel confident to share with others what you have learned through self-investigation and self-practice.

The curriculum presented in the Basic Training will give you a clear insight into the most relevant aspects of a Hatha yoga practice in its broader approach. PRACTISE Your practice is your foundation, your real teacher. In the training, you will commit to daily practicing asana,

pranayama

and meditation. Your practice will integrate into your personality, will open your mind and your heart and this will bring you to higher states of awareness. What you practice, you will understand. What you understand, you will be able to teach. ASANA You’ll

practise

asana, pranayama

techniques

and different meditations 2-6 hours every day. Since a Parimukti training is demanding and challenging physically and mentally, we find it important to have a good balance between more dynamic physical practice and classes to restore and rejuvenate (yin, yoga

nidra

, restorative).

PRANAYAMA A variation of different pranayama techniques is integrated in our your daily practice.

Consequently

you will become familiar with key verbal instructions, function,

benefits

and contra-indications of the most important pranayamas. At the end of the program you will have integrated these practices and, thus, will be able to incorporate pranayama into your teaching, as well.

MEDITATION Meditation is a very important element of Parimukti

trainings

. In this Basic

Training

you’ll develop an understanding of what meditation is and how other aspects of a yoga

practise

traditionally are used to prepare ourselves for moving deeper into gaining insight into ourselves and our relationship with the world. You will be introduced to meditation techniques like

vipassana

, dance meditation, dynamic meditation, shamata,

buddhist

meditations, etc. Also, every student can choose to have a day in ‘

mouna

‘: silence during the course. This day you will receive teachings and practices silently, allowing yourself to let go of critical thinking, questions and other habits of the mind. MANTRA You will be introduced to chanting mantras and the importance of Bhakti Yoga. You’ll learn some of the most important mantras and understand by experience how sound can positively charge oneself and the environment.

ALlGNMENT

You will have a daily alignment class, in which you learn 50 asana postures addressing their alignment. These classed include Sanskrit and English names, key verbal, function, basic hands-on adjustments,

benefits

and contra-indications. All types of asana are covered: standing, standing

balancing

, sitting poses (forward bends and twists) forward bends,

supine

,

backbending

, core awakening, arm

balance

and inversions.

PHYSICAL ANATOMY Proper understanding of anatomy is crucial for a yoga (asana) teacher. During this

course

you will study the functional applied anatomy of the major joints (knee joint, hip joint, shoulder joint, and spine), fundamental bones and basic muscles throughout the course. This will help you to understand and identify differences in students and corresponding needs.

YOGIC ANATOMY We will introduce you to the subtle bodies: the yogic anatomy of chakras,

nadis

, kriyas, mudras,

bandhas

and koshas. This will help you to more fully understand the process and benefits of yoga.

YOGIC PHILOSOPHY You will gain insight into the evolution of yoga from the Vedic to these modern times. We guide you in how to apply yoga philosophy in your yoga practice, your teachings, and most importantly, in your everyday life. The foundational philosophy is mostly based on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, with a particular focus on the 8 limbs of yoga. AYURVEDA You will receive an introduction to the pillars of the science of Ayurveda. Yoga and Ayurveda are like inseparable siblings. The combination of these two sciences

bring

forth a system of healing, for physical, mental, and spiritual health and happiness.

ART OF TEACHING Teaching is a great medium to learn about yourself and others.  Therefore, you will be asked to work with the other students, in groups, on teaching assignments from the very beginning. Our teachers will give you practical tools and constructive feedback that will help you grow rapidly and confidently. The Art of Teaching classes

are

a great platform where you can integrate what you have learned in the alignment, anatomy and philosophy classes. Above

all

you will be invited and challenged to find

yóur

unique way of teaching a class.

EXTRA’S An intensive yoga teacher training is a deeply transforming experience for each individual student. Therefore, we offer in-depth guidance and equip you with many skills for the journey of discovering your own innate nature and truth. For students with special

interests

we offer a mentor program which gives you personal guidance throughout the training. Also, after the

training

we can help you to set up your own center and mentor you on your further growth. And last but not least. Studying and spending almost a month with like-minded people will certainly

will

Lead Trainer

Bhavini’s lifestyle, growing up in India, has always been sustained by asanas, pranayama and meditation. She, however, made a regular practice after an emotionally rough period few years back and since then, she has never looked back. The asanas, breath work and chanting led her to a breakthrough and she underwent a complete transformation which she believes will cBhavini Sharmaontinue for years to come. The contentment that she derived from these practices guided her to share her knowledge with those who seek the same. She is a young spirit full of wisdom, cheerful, and extremely grounded at the same time.

She has learnt under various teachers across India and blends the teachings to share a session designed to suit present moment, mood and level of the practitioners. She emphasizes on alignment while teaching Hatha yoga and breath work during Vinyasa Kramas. Always a student of life and yoga, Bhavini strives to strike balance in her own life which is also the intention for most of her classes, to help her students compensate what’s missing from their lives off the mat– movement, awareness, and deeper understanding of the consciousness.

Manjeet Mathur

Manjeet Mathur

Meditation Teacher

Manjeet is born and brought up in India and has been travelling since seven years through the country seeking inspiration from different teachers. He has been a professional dancer, fitness enthusiast and intuitive since an early age. After a serious accident in the gym he suffered from a slipped disc. Through physiotherapy and stretching exercises, he was introduced to yoga and has been practising continuously since then.

Life changed for him when he found ‘his’ teacher guiding him through heart meditations and conscious breathwork. Since then, he has been sharing a wonderful combination of Hatha yoga, heart meditations, dance therapy and massage techniques.

He believes love and compassion are the only religion and life is a celebration of one’s own authentic self. He stresses the fact that even though each single session of his is transformational, the real yoga begins off the mat and in everyday life with our health, relationships, work and time alone. His motto: bring more love to each present moment through breath awareness and conscious actions.

Anna-Carin Tall

Anna-Carin Tall

Yoga Trainer

Anna-Carin Tall was born and raised in Sweden. She got introduced to yoga years ago, but at first regarded it as a physical practice replacing horseback riding. After a few years of asana practice she felt that more was happening to her then only physical improvement: she became calmer, stronger and more accepting towards herself and people around her. With that awakening she decidAnna-Carin Talled to take it to the next level and traveled to India to continue studying yoga.

She teaches with the intention to bring people closer together through the path of yoga. To Anna-Carin, teaching yoga is a real blessing as it enables her to bring more awareness to people living increasingly stressful lifes. She shares with them how to turn your attention inwards and be more gentle to yourself, everyone and everything around you. “Yoga is something you practice in everything you do, not only on your mat.”
